Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure



What’s the Benefit?
ACE enhances the Ridgeline’s safety performance by helping to absorb frontal crash energy and mitigating its effects on the passenger compartment.

The Feature:
The Honda-exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure on the Ridgeline has been designed for enhanced energy absorption in frontal collisions. This helps improve passenger-cabin crashworthiness, even during rigorous crash tests.

  • ACE enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions.

  • It utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.

  • This enhanced frontal crash-energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash.
